London Alternative Wedding Photographer – Wedding Routemasters

Hiring a routemaster for your wedding might have become a cliché for London weddings but it is still the best way to transport your guests from your ceremony venue to your wedding reception venue. Wedding routemasters are actually quite an attraction for many guests who have come from all over the country and even from abroad for the occasion. I have seen many guests – and not just children – more excited about the routemaster ride than the actual event itself! I suppose red routemasters symbolise London as much as Big Ben does. Plus there must be something exciting about being on a vintage bus driving with an open door!

Over the years I have had the opportunity to ride these wedding buses many times and here are a couple of things from my experience that might be of interest to you if you are planning to hire a wedding routemaster for your big day. 

  • Many couples think that it might be a good idea to have a tour of the city to entertain their guests. Well, anyone living in London knows that traffic in the capital can be hell even on a Saturday and no one enjoys being stuck on a bus – even a vintage one – for long. So, if on your journey to your wedding reception venue, the driver can drive past some of the city landmarks, by all means, include them in your plans however I would advise you not to go out of your way to catch a glance of the Parliament. You could waste a serious amount of time on a day when things go very quickly except maybe traffic…
  • Some couples imagine it would be great to stop in front of a landmark for portraits or even group shots. Just forget it. Firstly, it might be very tricky for the bus to be able to stop close enough to the actual monument. Secondly, you are likely to have tourists on your photos. Thirdly, the whole experience will probably take a lot more time than expected.
  • You might want to make your guest journey more relaxing by having some music played - some buses actually come equipped with a sound system and even some cool lighting!
  • Last but not least, in my experience, as soon as the wedding ceremony is over, both the couple and their guests have only one wish: to get a drink. So why not organise the first toast on the routemaster? It will definitely make people more relaxed and put them in the mood for celebration.

London Alternative Wedding Photographer – Planning a Winter Wedding

Most engaged couples hope to have great weather on their wedding day and therefore get married in spring or summer. Other couples get married in autumn and the bravest pick winter.

As a London alternative wedding photographer I love shooting quirky, unconventional weddings anytime of the year. Winter weddings are said to be the trickiest weddings to shoot due to the lack of natural light. If you are familiar with the way I work you must be aware that I do not use a flash, so this is especially true for me. I usually explain my approach to prospective couples to clarify what is feasible or not in terms of non-flash photography – for example having big group shots indoors might not be the best idea. However I enjoy shooting with whatever light is available – whether natural or artificial – so I welcome the challenge of photographing a winter wedding.

If you are planning a winter wedding – I would call a winter wedding any wedding taking place from November to February – here are two important things you might want to take into consideration.

  • Schedule your wedding ceremony as early in the day as possible in order to make the most of the daylight. This is especially the case for weddings taking place in November, December and January. The ceremony itself should be fine as wedding venues are usually lit however you would want as much light as possible for any group shots and portraits. In some circumstances, it might be a good idea to actually schedule group shots and portraits before the ceremony. 
  • Brides, be aware that you are probably going to be cold. Obviously wedding venues are well heated during winter however you are likely to be spending some time outdoors and the weather can be quite chilly especially in January, February and March. Although you will probably be wearing some sort of coat or fur, we all know that sexy, gorgeous, wedding dresses are not likely to be warm.

I am not a big fan of chilly weather myself so I always do my best to find suitable indoor portrait locations when shooting a winter wedding. Both the ceremony venue and the reception venue are obvious choices however the place you are getting ready at might be an option too. Scouting for photogenic locations allows me to work quickly and efficiently which is invaluable when shooting outdoor portraits in winter.

Alternative Wedding Photography – Getting Ready Photos: Yes or No?

When I get wedding enquiries, some couples know exactly what they want in terms of photography – usually alternative, non-cheesy, natural wedding photography – and how long they would need me for. Others can be a little bit overwhelmed by the whole ‘wedding thing’ and are not quite sure what coverage length they should pick. 

In general the main part they are uncertain about is whether or not to have ‘getting ready’ photos taken. Whenever they ask for advice, here is my answer to them. My approach to wedding photography is documentary and as unobtrusive as possible and my goal is to tell the story of your day as it unfolds whether it starts with you getting ready or arriving at the wedding ceremony venue. Either way is absolutely fine by me. 

Having said that, here are some reasons why you might want to have some ‘getting ready’ photos.

  • If you are particularly uncomfortable in front of a camera, starting the coverage while you are getting ready will give you time to get used to the way I work and to hearing me ‘clicking around’. So by the time you walk down the aisle, I’ll just be part of the furniture.
  • It is a nice way to start the story of your special day. I personally find ‘behind the scene’ stuff very exciting – it is probably the voyeur in me… My favourite situation is when the bride/groom/couple is getting ready at home – this gives me an insight into ‘your world’ and allows me to document a specific time and place in your life as you are likely to move out at some point.
  • Whether you and your wife/husband-to-be are getting ready together without anyone else to witness the moment but me or with lots of family members and friends around, you might want to have a record of these special relationships before the more solemn photos of the ceremony.

Enough said. Here is a selection of some of my favourite ‘getting ready’ photos to give you an idea of what you can expect.

Alternative Wedding Photographer London - Autumn Wedding

As an alternative wedding photographer one of the reasons why I choose to work with laidback couples is that they are flexible and to a certain extent, spontaneous. 

The following alternative wedding took place on a gorgeous November day in Crouch End, North London. 

After shooting the wedding ceremony, some group shots and portraits at Hornsey Town Hall, the couple decided to walk to the wedding reception venue instead of taking a cab. On the way to the Three Compasses in Crouch End, the bride suggested that we went for a stroll in Priory Park.

Although the couple and I discuss the timeline of the day together before the wedding, I do not mind last minute changes.

My approach to wedding photography is relaxed for three reasons. The first one is that it is important to me that the couple I photograph thoroughly enjoys their day – I know how stressful this unusual situation can be and it certainly helps to see that your photographer is confident that everything will be alright. The second reason is that I want to enjoy my job and the way I manage to do that is by being fully present in the moment. And last by not least the more relaxed I am the more creative I am.

So I welcomed this unexpected walk in the park as an opportunity to shoot portraits in an environment that I would have normally overlooked. Although I love nature, it is not my first choice when looking for photogenic portrait locations as I am more drawn to urban photography. However in this case it would have been such a shame to miss the gorgeous autumn colours and evening light. Enjoy!
